Nokia's Taking Windows Phone Budget With the Lumia 610

By Sam Gibbs on at

We’ve seen the Lumia 900, 800, 710 (shown above) and even a rumoured 910, but it seems there’s another Nokia on the block -- the Lumia 610.

TechRadar has it on good authority that Nokia’s aiming squarely at the budget end of the market with the 610, which the naming scheme would certainly indicate. It’ll also apparently be running Windows Phone Tango, which is meant to bring in support for lower-powered, lower-cost hardware.

Both are meant to launch at MWC along with the international edition of the Lumia 900, aka the 910. A cheap Windows Phone might not be of much interest to the iPhone and Nexus crowds, but if the price is right, it might give budget Android a run for its money. This kind of reminds me of Microsoft’s last attempt at a budget friendly phone though, and we all know how well that worked. [TechRadar]
